My husband and I have spent the last few years doing filming projects in Indonesia and spent a fair bit of time in Cenderawasih Bay, Papua.  It seems like more and more people are headed to the area to dive/swim with the whale sharks but we have noticed that it is a nightmare to find good information online about Nabire and getting out to the whale sharks.  We wrote up this guide on our blog to hopefully help others navigate Nabire (always an adventure!).  

 

It is an amazing place to spend time with whale sharks.  Best of luck to any one headed there!

Yep, but be aware of the locals. They seem to be quite agressive and hostile. Some liveaboards are no longer going there.
